National Party Insurrection in Uruguay 1870-1872

[ 1870 - 1872 ]

The constitutional government of General Lorenzo Batlle y Grau (1868-72) was forced to suppress an insurrection led by the National Party. After two years of struggle, a peace agreement was signed in 1872 that gave the Blancos a share in the emoluments and functions of government, through control of four of the country's departments. This establishment of the policy of coparticipation (coparticipaci├│n) represented the search for a new formula of compromise, based on the coexistence of the party in power and the party in opposition.
